  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    Brazil is a federal state that is subdivided into 26 provincial states ("estados") and 1 federal district (the capital Brasilia), which is quite independent as far as economic and energy issues are concerned.

    The Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) has the responsibility for the whole energy sector. The National Council for Energy Policy (CNPE), composed of government representatives, ...

  • Energy Companies


    Petrobras (Federal Government 50.3% of common shares and 28.7% of capital stock) is the national oil and gas company and the largest Brazilian company. The company faced a massive corruption scandal in 2016 and is attempting to stabilise its soaring debt by reducing costs, selling assets and cutting capital spending. In December 2017, the company had a net debt estimated at US$84.9bn, down ...

  • Energy Supply


    Brazil has large energy resources. Proven reserves of oil and condensates are estimated at 1 719 Mt, and gas reserves at 370 bcm at end 2017. Coal reserves are at 6.6 Gt. With 156 Mt of uranium, Brazil has the world's 8th largest uranium reserves. The economically exploitable hydroelectric potential is high (763 TWh, i.e. twice the current level of production). The wind energy potential is ...

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices are subject to the approval of ANEEL. Prices have been roughly stable since 2013. In 2018, the average price reached US$19.3c/kWh in the residential sector and US$16.5c/kWh in the industrial sector. These price levels are among the highest in Latin America.


  • Energy Consumption

    With a per capita consumption of 1.4 toe (2017), Brazil is within the average range for semi-industrialised countries but well below the European average of 3.1 toe.

    Total energy consumption increased at a fairly rapid pace between 2000 and 2014 (3.5%/year, on average). After a two-year decrease (-1.6% in 2015 and -3.3% in 2016), it remained stable in 2017 (289 Mtoe).

    Oil is the ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    According to the last ten-year Energy Expansion Plan 2027 (PDE 2027) published in 2018 by the EPE, final energy consumption should grow by an average of 2.6%/year between 2017 and 2027. Over this period, electricity consumption is expected to increase by 4.4%/year, oil products by 1%/year, gas by 3.2%/year and coal by 2.3%/year. Biomass and biofuel consumption should continue to progress at ...
